Sawquip Vertical Roll Infeed

Sawquip has developed this efficient 8’-16’ log infeed to replace existing infeeds that are space restrained and require accurate positioning to chipping canters and/or saws.

Principle of operation

When fed by a manual log turner, the first two modules are fitted with bar rollers to ensure that the rotation of the log is complete before it enters the spiked roller modules.

The modular concept makes it possible to feed logs of different shapes and diameters without affecting their retention and their centering.

Pin roller modules are adjustable and are oriented so the log stays in contact with the wear plate (anvil that supports the log to the Canter heads).

Advantages of High Efficiency Modular Entry:

  • Easy to incorporate and install in a confined space
  • Respects the sawing axis of the log
  • Possibly fed continuously
  • Roller drive (electro-mechanical)
  • No drive chain
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Easy access to all mechanics
  • Reduced maintenance
